Young Dance Artist Project Weekend Workshop
January 19 & 20, 2013
An intensive workshop designed for young dancers who wish to investigate fun and new ideas in training, creation & performance in contemporary dance.
We engage with young people because it makes our art better, contributes to building informed cultural advocates and shares our specific language around dance skills and tools for creativity. We share our passion for asking questions about the world in which we live and encourage them to do likewise. Our way of working is highly specific, yet fun and open.” - Michael Trent, Dancemakers Artistic Director & Resident Choreographer
